The Milwaukee Police Department is asking for the community's help to identify the suspects involved in several taco truck robberies on Wednesday.

Five separate taco truck robberies took place between 7 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.on the city's south side. 

Police turned to Twitter for assistance in finding the three suspects responsible.

The first suspect is a Hispanic male, 20-25-years-old with short dark hair and a tattoo on his right hand. Police describe the second suspect as a Hispanic male, 20-25-years-old and the last suspect a black male in his 30's with shoulder-length braids. 

Police say the suspects approached the taco trucks, pointed firearms at the people inside and demanded money. They were seen fleeing the scene in a newer model red or burgundy Nissan Sentra without a front license plate. 

Anyone with information can contact Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360.
